hmm.. it's not lag per se, but when you compare scrolling performance side by side with other browsers you may notice slight stuttering during each scroll step, whereas other browsers scroll smoothly at 60fps

Using RES, uB0 and uMatrix, I've removed nearly all bells and whistles, never use subreddit style, and have a simple, quiet, grey theme.
yes, i browse some css intensive subs, for example sport subs where each user has a flair/logo of their team next to their name

i run zero external AV/antimalware, and scrolling performance is the same whether i'm using my 40+ addon setup or testing on a brand new profile.
